The Brave Bathroom Escape

They're the gutsy ones. My friends who have enough courage to ask their date for a few minutes of 'out' time in the excuse of using the ladies room. 
Each time I hear their stories of how they phone home from the bathroom stall or ask for an emergency call in 10 minutes, I truly am in awe. 
Don't get me wrong, I would consider myself gutsy YET I sorta have Jewish guilty mother syndrome where I feel bad leaving the guy sitting there. And I'm sorta embarassed to ask to use the washroom whether I need it or not. 
I can't understand how these girls do it. How they get away with it each time. Obviously the guys haven't a clue. After all "a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do". 
Sometimes you just need an out. When that time happens I just sit politely and not my head, all with a smile. I was brought up to be well-mannered and whether I'm having the most boring time or am really dreaming of an early night I will never ask for an out. I'm just hoping the guy will get the hint and end it there. 
Not sure whose better off tho; the bathroom escape or the smiling sailor who sits through the entire time. 


  1. A fellow "smiling sailor" here.

    In the end, whenever I take the high road, I am happier for it, because I know I did what I had to do and I can sleep at night, no worries. Even if he was a jerk, I did the right thing, unlike HIM.

    Us Hungarian girls got class. ;)

  2. I enjoy reading your shiduch adventures and thoughts!
    At the same time, I hope you'll give us the good news that you found the right guy real soon!
